Lunatics On Pogosticks are a trio of teen Aussie rapscallions that have been squeezing out some tasty tunes since gestation. With the firelickin' Calum Newton shootin' out electro orgasms on G-tar/Vocs, the impenetrable James Whitfield gettin' dumb on the drums and Bryce Wilson making bass guitar popular since 95. Delicious Lo-Fi garage pop-noise alt stylings are the name of the game.

Sydney lo-fi garage-rockers Lunatics On Pogosticks have won Unearthed High 2013. Their skuzzy surf rock riffs, catchy choruses and thought-out crunchiness bring distortion, fuzz and a whole lotta fun!
Tell us about your music - how did you develop your sound?
We originally started off as just wanting to make noisy garage tunes and stuff like that, real guitar driven without much thought for lyrics and melody. I think the major development throughout the course of our music has been maintaining this really chaotic distortion and atmosphere whilst becoming a lot more interested in pop dimensions and trying to create catchy hooks and all that jazz.
You’re the winners of Unearthed High 2013. What are you hoping to gain from this opportunity?
Too stokeddd! It's been majorly rad having our song played on the radio and being able to professionally record a song instead of just doing it in my garage (haha!). I think we're all just keen to finish the HSC and then really assess what we're going to do with the band.
What’s your favourite memory of seeing live Australian music?
Watching Dune Rats in some dudes house in Byron. Best night everrr!!!
What’s the best advice you’ve been given and by who?
"I used to be with it, but then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it, and what's it seems weird and scary to me, and it'll happen to you, too." - Abe Simpson, tellin' it how it is.
What else is coming up for you in 2013?
Hopefully lots of different things. There's definitely some gnarly dates that are gonna be marked in our calendar.

Surprise surprise, I also really like this. Fun, catchy power pop punk, reminiscent of Kisschasy but still very much LOP. Congrats guys!

This kicks so much butt, you guys. I'm gonna get the strangest looks on the bus when I shaking my body around singing about blood clots and loving thrombi. But hey, that's the price you pay for loving something as sick as this.
